July is a great month to visit London. The weather is warmer and there is not as…

How do you define beauty? How does society define beauty? How do teens define beauty? Project Beauty was started to emphasize natural beauty in young women, to redefine the definition of beauty amongst teens and change how it is portrayed on social media.

I am so proud of them for embracing their natural beauty, for making a statement, and for taking this journey. Many of the girls have provided a quote or…

It was also important to us to spend several days outside of Panama City. We went to…
